The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's inner circle reportedly think that the New Slaves hitmaker has forced the reality TV star to completely change her lifestyle.
A source told gossip website TMZ.com: "Kanye wants to make sure that every single aspect of Kim's life is now handled the way he wants it to be.
"He is controlling everything from her wardrobe to business choices and it's definitely a change for Kim, who has always relied on her mother to take care of her. A lot of what Kim does now is dictated by Kanye."
The brunette beauty, 32, who gave birth to her first child, daughter North West, in June, and has not been seen out in public since then, has reportedly decided to take a break from her long-time publicist, Jill Fritzo, as she enjoys a break from the spotlight.
The source added: "This is just another way Kanye is asserting his control over Kim and trying to make sure she follows his lead in everything instead of what her own mother has always done, which is completely expose every aspect of her life to the public for money.
"Kanye is different. He isn't a reality star and he doesn't want Kim to be so public with their personal lives anymore."
The couple is currently planning a huge wedding and Kanye, 36, is said to be the driving force behind their special day, as he wants to get married more than Kim, who was previously married twice before.
